Babies at the zoo.

It’s rare to see the mom and baby orangutan this close to the glass. The baby was very entertained by pressing her face up to the glass.

I went back to Lowry Park zoo early on a Sunday morning to see the baby tiger cub.  The baby was not out that morning so the dad was out alone having a snack. He seemed to be enjoying it. He kept showing it off.

The juvenile little blue heron above was testing out his wings. He was a little wobbly as he moved from branch to branch and he was flapping hard. I don’t think he was quite ready to take off yet but soon. I like the way you can see his bones in his wings. He’s still got some pin feathers underneath there.

The ones above are still too young to be off moving around yet. They must have been the last ones born later this spring.

There was still a tiny one.  A very late tricolored heron baby with his parent were on the other side of the alligator exhibit at Lowry Park Zoo. Another great wild baby bird season is coming to a close at the zoo.

“Can you get this hammer off my head?”

“A nice dead tree to chew on. As long as those elephants don’t knock it down.”

A few fun things at the zoo. I always swear I’m going to stay away during the hottest part of summer but when a baby elephant is born it’s worth the sweat to go see it play.
